    A week ago I bought a Toshiba 34HF81C and a SD3750 DVD player.

    Initially I was very impressed and happy with the unit but yesterday I noticed that when the picture is in "Theater wide mode 1" there is a band across the center of the picture that looks like the two parts of the interlaced image are misaligned horizontaly. Vertical lines have a comb-like edge to them. The problem is there no matter which input is selected and even distorts the on-screen menus. The other picture modes are clear.

    Two other problems are curved edges on the grey bars at the sides of the screen when in 4:3 mode and the reds seem awful pink to my eye.

    Does anyone have any advice to offer? Are these minor problems or would I be better off to start with a new unit? I think I'll get it serviced under warranty first but I'm very disappointed and am considering returning the TV before my 30 day refund guarantee runs out.

    Try turning the contrast and brightness way down.
